Marco Boerries, the chief of Yahoo's Connected Life division, is leaving the company, Yahoo said Wednesday.
Boerries joined Yahoo four years ago and led its effort to bring its services to mobile phones and more recently TVs. News of his departure was first reported by Kara Swisher at All Things D on Wednesday, and Yahoo confirmed the departure.
Swisher quoted Boerries' good-bye memo as saying it's been difficult for him to reconcile his personal and professional lives, given that his family lives in Germany.
However, one source close to the situation said Boerries' departure had more to do with Yahoo's latest management reorganization under Chief Executive Carol Bartz, which is expected to be announced Thursday or Friday.
In addition, Yahoo News chief Neeraj Khemlani is departing for Hearst.
